House Tour: Southern Farmhouse Style

southern farmhouse kitchen

Good morning, chic readers! We don’t know about you, but the cold, dark days of winter always have us wanting to bundle up and get outside. 

southern farmhouse kitchen

And have us dreaming of escaping to a retreat outside of town, a cabin or farmhouse that feels nothing short of a getaway, like this incredible farmhouse by Ashley Gilbreath Interior Design. and photographed by Holland Williams

southern farmhouse

We imagine ourselves baking things from scratch…

Warming up by the fire after a day savoring the festive chill of the outdoors…

southern farmhouse bedroom

And, finally, curling up in a cozy, warm, bed, loaded with down comforters, to savor a night of peaceful, quiet sleep.

southern farmhouse bathroom

This Southern farmhouse is the absolute pinnacle of an escape from reality, with a touch of shabby chic decor

southern farmhouse bedroom

A place where every member of the family can feel relaxed,

And where the details make it worth coming home to. 

southern farmhouse bunk room

As much as we love every charming element of the interior, including these amazing bunk beds,

It’s what’s outside that is truly special. 

This is a farm after all!

And what could be more beautiful than these sweet faces? Would you want to get away to this charming farmhouse retreat? We know we would!

Thanks so much for stopping by today. We always love it when you do!

Last week we had the pleasure of spending a fun-filled long weekend in the place that we think gets as close to Christmas magic as you can without going to the North Pole: NYC! I had the most amazing day of meetings with the team at Gallery Books (Simon & Schuster) about all that is THE SECRET TO SOUTHERN CHARM, the sequel to SLIGHTLY SOUTH OF SIMPLE and the second book in Peachtree Bluff series–and filmed fun videos that I can’t wait to share with you! To celebrate the upcoming launch (April 3, 2018!) and get you in the holiday spirit, we’re giving away a $100 Amazon gift card for your holiday essentials. Enter below!
